hi guys wonder if you can help

hopefully my sky hd and multiroom will be fitted on sunday i dont have a phone line yet but sky are activating it for me and say it will be ok to install if my property will allow it

i live in a listed building on a seaside street where no dishes or anything can be on show some dishes on other houses are hidden on roof but at the back of my flat outside my bedroom is an old pole with an old sky dish attatched so i am hoping they will use that as its totally hidden

anyways my main thing is all this adsl connections and stuff.

i only will have one phone socket in the next room and this will need to accomodate 1 hd box 1 normal box 1 telephone and the broadband when it comes from sky

how the heck does this all fit and will it stop me making calls or anything

all i can think is getting one of those adsl splitters and plugging that into the box on the wall

then put the sky bb into the adsl slot

then buy a bt triple connecter and plug that into the other slot for phone

then plug into this the 2 boxes and my phone

is one splitter all i need or do i need splitters on the end of everything

i have always been a cable person so i just dont know

many thanks

Master NTE5 filtered faceplate then to Router/ Modem and other to triple adaptor as you say.

Or normal faceplate and use ADSL adaptor then use same method as you said :)
